Between the man-made and the natural, between order and disorder, the garden can offer productive metaphors for the interactions between human life and time, care, thought or space.
Pablo León De La Barra proposes to give a talk about gardens that have inspired him, and the relationship between some paradigmatic buildings, artworks and gardens.
From Luis Barragán to Carlos Pellicer, Dr. Atl, Edward James, Mathias Goertiz, Roberto Burle Marx, Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi and ideas for gardens and garden museums.
